  • MA Onodje

It is thus appropriate in the current adverse global economic circumstances, to determine the direction of the banking sector reforms. This paper discusses the various reasons offered for the banking sector reform in Nigeria, as well as the history and content of banking sector reforms prior to the 2004 banking reforms.
